He transferred money to my paypal account. under the requirement that because he didnt have his credit card on board a ship i had to pay the courier fee for the car to go from perth to darwin! this was $950. which i had to pay for the transfer to complete because paypal \'NEEDED\' the info from my payment.

the agent was in china so i immediately knew something dodgy was up because you dont work in china if you are moving cars \'within\' australia!
